"The actual production is actually taking place in the U.S. The location is known but they have not disclosed the contract manufacturer"

Bolaji, any particular reason for not disclosing this. My personal opinion is with proud they have to announce the places, inorder to justify the claim "Design and Manufactured in USA".

Bolaji, they are releasing the product with a tag of "Design and Made in USA", but they are undisclosure about the place of manufacturing. So what's the credibility of their statement, I think it's just like an eye catching, another thing is as of now Google doesn't have any hardware manufacturing facility and hence that part is outsourced.

RIM may have fallen off the market rim. Perhaps Nokia still stands a chance.

Not sure what Google is trying to prove with its made-in-Usa coming products like Nexus Q and Glass. Apple has been proven sucessfully manufactured outside Usa with strong control of the process.

@tirlapur, I agree, this is what the consumer want. Rather than allowing Apple to capitalise on the large market share, it's time the likes of RIM,Nokia and HP too wake up to this realisation to provide quality innovative product at a highly competitive prices.

syedzunair,

The Nexus Q is a media player device, not a tablet.

Susan, thanks for sharing the link! 

But don't you think $299 is quite high for an Android tablet?

But will it create a dent in Apple's product?

@Anna young, why not. When Samsung products like Samsung Galaxy can give tough compeitition to Apple why not google products ? I think those companies which innovate and provide new unique features will definitely capture the larger market share.
